Overview

When combined in a single garment, pillow, or throw, knitting and crochet can create dazzling effects. Knitting Loves Crochet is brimming with unique designs that make the most of both crafts. You'll find great patterns that use crochet to create edgings, such as a chic knit cardigan edged with lacy crochet; a stunning, fitted tank finished with a paler shade of crochet at the top and bottom; and placemats trimmed with delicate crocheted color. Other patterns use crocheted insets and motifs — granny squares in dog sweaters, flowers on a felted purse, fingerless gloves with beaded crochet wrist trim. The possibilities are endless!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this fresh collection of 22 patterns for garments, accessories, and home decor items, needlework designer Jensen (Knit Scarves!) combines the techniques of knitting and crocheting to take advantage of the best qualities of each. Some projects are crocheted with a touch of knitting (e.g., an afghan with a wide knitted border), but most are knitted with a touch of crochet (e.g., the dressy tank top with filet crochet yoke and bottom edging). There are full-page color photographs of each design and separate step-by-step instructions for the knitted and crocheted elements of each piece. As a means of awakening knitters to the creative possibilities of using crochet touches in their own designs and to enhance commercial patterns, this book is recommended for public libraries.
